Ecuador: The Galapagos Island Under Threat From Climate Change

Deutsche Welle (Oct. 7, 2013) — Ecuador's Galapagos Islands are a Unesco World Heritage site and home to flora and fauna found nowhere else in the world. But one in five native plants as well as nearly 50 percent of its endemic wildlife are under threat from climate change. Rising ocean temperatures are making it harder for species such as the famous Galapagos penguin and the giant tortoise to survive. Scientists with the Charles Darwin Foundation are doing what they can to protect these species from the effects of climate change. A number of changes to the energy sector - such as the introduction of clean electricity - are helping. The island of Floreana has already switched completely to electricity produced by jatropha seeds, which grow in the Manabi region in mainland Ecuador. Jatropha production is also bringing an economic upswing to farmers.
